New Wing Design Reduces Emissions and Fuel Consumption by 50%

New Wing Design Reduces Emissions and Fuel Consumption by 50%

00 NASA and Boeing engineers designed a wing that will reduce emissions and fuel consumption by 50%. Wings create lift, however, they also accumulate weight. The more weight, the more fuel and money is increased in order to make it airborne.  An ideal ratio must be met to satisfy both weight reduction and lift to create a fuel efficient design. Current technologies have improved wing design by incorporating lightweight material including titanium alloys and carbon…

Nanogenerators: The Cleverest Things You’ve Never Seen

Nanogenerators: The Cleverest Things You’ve Never Seen

00 Incredible advances in nanotechnology, including biomedical and wearable electronics, require innovations in suitable power sources. Nanogenerator technology is surging forward to meet this need. What are Nanogenerators The word nano means billionth, so a nanometer is one billionth of a meter. This is the tiny world in which nanogenerators operate, visible only through high-powered microscopes. Generating power at this scale requires specialized methods of energy harvesting. The three types of nanogenerators currently in development…

Industrial Turbines and the World’s Largest Mufflers

Industrial Turbines and the World’s Largest Mufflers

00 With great power comes a lot of sound, sound that could kill you if you stepped to close. Hence why massive industrial turbines need similarly incredibly massive mufflers to contain the noise and protect the workers. Turbine engines generate a lot of noise, over 150 dB from 25 meters away. That is enough to rupture an eardrum and warrant a hospital trip. Airports combat this by building runways far from any outside people or…
